Perhaps you sent a lovely card,
Or sat quietly in a chair.
sent a funeral spray
If so we saw it there.
Perhaps you spoke the kindest words.
As any friend could say;
Perhaps you were not there at all,
Just though of us that day.
Whatever you did to console our hearts,
thank you so much whatever the part.
